Is it really October 8th? The weather continues to act like summer, being very stubborn about moving into Fall....sounds like me. In reality, autumn is a wonderful time in Eastern WA as the leaves change color and we "eastsiders" get to experience all four seasons. The grapes are moving along nicely as we seemed to have evaded early sugar spikes and allow for full maturation where flavors, sugars and acids develop in concert. They're tasting yummy!
The Corvus Cellars event schedule continues to be robust for us as we look at activities happening in both the Puget Sound area as well as Walla Walla. We continue to be blessed with great feedback and very strong word of mouth referrals. I have said it many times, but it still holds true that the best marketing comes from those people that have experienced Corvus wines and decide to tell two friends. Sounds like the Prell commercial right? For all of those Corvus ambassadors, we thank you and continue the great work!
In the winery, we are playing around with a few things and getting ready to bring in the rest of the fruit. For starters, we've crushed and pressed our Red Mountain Syrah and Cab Franc and we'll be starting ML soon. The Syrah is looking amazing and the estate Cab Franc is looking good as well, let's see if it makes it to a stand alone wine for our club members. What else? Well, we are keeping that a surprise....but let's just say that PINK wine should have a place in your life. More on that to follow.
Jen is preparing a note to our club members as we get ready to send out the Fall shipments. Stay tuned.
Happy autumn to everyone!
